mmmmm....Donut spin :)
It appears Ice Network is going to show the CoR exhibition...their live feed is still on after the award ceremony was finished.
Thanks for the alert, Kimmie Fan.

I am having to exercise a great deal of personal restraint to keep myself from making scathing references to the IN policy, but it is very difficult. It is ironic that people in other parts of the world are free to watch GP TV broadcasts and Webcasts, while in "the land of the free", the people are suddenly not free to do so.
Did they end up showing it? Have they shown any of the other GP exhibitions so far?

I just got a few thoughts; these Russian Ice Dancers who won today (too lazy to look up their names) are really daring and fun. Joubert showed everyone his lyrical side first - which is not too bad actually, his fluent, fast skating and good edging makes it quite enjoyable - and after that he rocked the house. Zhang/Zhang must have a new costume designer, their costumes went from horrific and ugly to terrific and stylish over the summer - I especially loved her exhibition outfit. On an equally shallow note I just want Smirnov to grow his hair back - please! Pretty please? I need to start a petition...
Kostner and Verner kept their exhibitions from last year and they were okay. I like Flatt's exhibtion (Respect), the upbeat program really suits her - as does the costume (no more baby blue princess dresses please - oops, shallow again). And Suguri was fantastic, probably landed more clean Triples than in the free program, and not just Toeloops.
No and No. IN did advertise that the Exhibitions would be availalbe On Demand. I am still waiting.

Zhang/Zhang's costume designer this season is their coach Bin Yao. They used to have costumes designed by Americans and Russians. Bin Yao hated those flashy stripes &accessories and so he decided to design the costume for Z/Z himself. Yao used to design for Shen&Zhao's costumes in their early years when the Chinese team had very limited budget. Those costumes were hideous.

Demarinis, did you ever get to see the Exhibitions? I read on a board that Brian skated two programs in it so very well, that I wish I could see them.

Maybe a revised judging system could include a 1% bonus for the best FREE skate routines.
I read elsewhere that IN did not show the exhibitions after all.
This was the way I looked before all the IN-YouTube erasure craziness
This is how I look now. :sheesh: :banging:
